NSI in Hood River makes glue on ‘inserts’ and pads with ‘inserts’ that work really nicely if you want to add them until they change their build?

I agree with how amazing this board is and putting inserts back. I was disappointed when I upgraded to the new model last year and it didn't have inserts. So nice to have the option if you want.

Yes thanks for suggestions. The nsi glue on is what I have been using. They are great but not as great as the real thing

Actually since they stick so well, I’ve been wondering if they might be better at allowing the board to flex more as they were designed rather than add flat spots with the inserts? Or if I could even feel the difference?
